Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Emily put up a very strong performance yesterday in her first game, netting $7,000 on Daily Doubles. If she can keep making good use of the Daily Doubles, she’ll be well-positioned to take a second victory.

PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to. When wearing a mask, ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.
